I am getting ready to do my daughter's 3rd birthday cake, JoJo's Circus, and saw the Pillsbury Funfetti cake mix at the store. If you have tried this or baked this, do you have any imput on flavor? Easy to bake, or any problems? Also, can I add vanilla to make it more flavorful instead of just "white cake"? TIA!!!!!

I personally don't like anything but Duncan Hines. DH is very moist. Pillsbury has the least flavor to their icing and cakes. I would make a DH classic white; which tastes delicious and add some sprinkles to the mix. That is the best way to go.

I've made it and it tasted like a white cake mix to me, but very colorful. Vanilla might just give it a lift.

It is just a white cake with sprinkles in it. You make it just like a regular cake mix.

I just baked three funfetti cakes tonight. It is a very easy cake to make. I just follow the directions for the whole egg recipe. All three of my cakes came out just perfect. I did have a little difficulty with the last cake (because I am impatient) I didn't wait 5-10 min before turning it out of the pan and it started to stick. Other than that I would recommend it.

Good Luck!

I've also used this mix with no problems. The extra vanilla makes it son much better. I think the funfetti mix goes great with your JoJo theme.

I have used it with no problems. I like to use pure lemon extract about 2 tsp. to my white mixes. Cheffie icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

I also add vanila or almond to flavour my white cakes mixes and if I want a lemon or orange flavour I just use fresh juice to replace some of the water or milk

Thanks ladies for your quick responses...now how much vanilla flavoring would you add? 1 tsp or 2?

Add some white chocolate pudding to the mix. It adds a lot of moisture to the mix. 1tsp. of vanilla is good!
Good luck!

I like extra flavor, so for grownups, I'd add 2tsp. For kids - 1 tsp.

When you add pudding to the cake mix is it necessary to increase the water or oil?

You can also just use a white cake recipe you like and bake in some cake deco sprinkles from the grocery store, and have a cake with a lot more taste and a lot fewer funky chemicals

I also add a box of 4-serving pudding mix to a boxed cake mix. I only add one more egg than the mix calls for. It seems to make the cake a little denser, more like a pound cake texture.
